Welcome, I’m glad you stopped by for a visit.
Like life, this site, is a collection of many things.
I love crafting and I love gardening … hence my name was created … Crafty Gardener, who in real life is Linda. Now I’m retired I have more time to do all the things I love to do, and I often wonder how I had time to go to work. I’ve been sharing my love of gardening and crafting since my site was established in 2004 with my own domain as a gift from my family.
This photo was taken on a visit to Niagara Falls in April 2015.
Gardening is just one important part of my life. Family is the most important part. We have been married 47 years, have 3 beautiful daughters and handsome son-in-laws and four wonderful and energetic grandchildren keep us smiling and young!
If you are looking for help in seed identification you have come to the right place. I’ve been documenting the growth of seeds, seedpods and seedlings of all the plants that grow in my Canadian garden.
There is also crafting, reading, sewing, genealogy, and all the other little things that make our life interesting and important.
I live close to the Bay of Quinte on Lake Ontario, Canada, where my garden zone is 5b. Now that is 5b in the Canadian way of determining gardening zone. Don’t get confused with the USDA way in which my garden would be 4b. My gardens are mainly perennial beds with lots of annuals growing in containers.
The Crafty Side of me enjoys creating re’find’ things out of used objects.
I also love knitting, crochet, plastic canvas and sewing.
A lot of my visitors arrive from searching for ideas for covered coat hangers. If you are looking for these patterns you have come to the right place.
